Gran Turismo 7 Is Closing The Gap On GT3 To Become The Highest-Earning Game In The Franchise

When Gran Turismo 7 launched on the PS5 two years ago, it was clear from the jump that this was the beginning of a new era for the franchise.

Brilliant game, especially in VR.

My condolences to all the GT haters lmao
This game is legendary.

MaximusPrime_57d ago

I'm one of the late purchaser of GT7. Believe me, the game's amazing.

Me to lovingbit bought 2 months ago

If only it would release on pc!

anast56d ago

It will in 5years for the gamers that have high end PCs. Imagine playing this on medium settings...

DarXyde56d ago

Eh... But GT3 did it without microtransactions at a lower price. I think GT3 deserves more credit, but that's just me.

Not at all a jab at GT7, but considering the infrastructure today and cost make it easier for the game, it highlights how incredible GT3 performed in its era.

franwex56d ago

I’m in the same boat as you. Also prices are higher now and GT7 is on 2 consoles. While GT3 only on one. Goes to show how big GT3 was.

What helped gt3 was the graphical jump from Psx to PS2. It was mind blowing. Gt7 doesn't have that luxury. Gt7 had to focus on gameplay.

DarXyde56d ago

And you think that luxury afforded to GT3 outweighs the expanded gaming market, greater establishment as a franchise over about 2 decades, combined install base of PS4 and PS5 and mtx afforded to GT7?

There are no microtransactions in GT7, as nothing is locked behind a paywall. You can buy in-game credits with real money to speed up single player progression, but that is completely optional and probably unnecessary. You don't even have to buy a car in order to take part in the weekly online events, you can just borrow one for the race.

It's not like other racing games where you have to buy car and/or track packs with real money if you want to have access to all the content on the game that you already paid for.

DarXyde55d ago

1. We may be operating on different ideas of what micro transactions are. I see micro transactions and in-game purchases as one in the same. Whether you need them to obtain something or not.

2. Regardless of how you define it, I maintain that GT7's dollar amount is bolstered by users making such purchases. My point is very simply that this is not an advantage GT3 had.

There only needs to be one player making such a purchase to prove my point. It's also a way to earn revenue from used games, which if you bought GT3 used, Polyphony didn't earn anything from "in-game purchases" if we're using that nomenclature.

I'm not saying anything crazy here.

The best PS5 exclusives 2024

With so many PS5 exclusives to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming to pick which one to play. This is especially true for a new PlayStation gamer who has yet to experience the wonder of PlayStation-exclusive storytelling. So, here's KnowTechie's take on the best PS5 exclusives in 2024 and beyond

PlayStation is killing it with the exclusives this year. Exclusive wise, what has xbox released this year?

VersusDMC7d ago

They won't complain about Microsoft not releasing games here but put all their effort into saying that only first party counts. Games like Rebirth and Grandblue Relink don't count. Games published by Sony like Helldivers 2, Stellar Blade and Rise of the Ronin don't count because Sony don't own the studios.

It's some narrative building so for when Hellblade 2 come out they can say, seemingly without shame, that Microsoft is actually releasing first party games this year. And claim victory.🙃

Chevalier7d ago

Weird 1st party games didn't matter when Xbox had so little, but, now they're important again? Guess Ark 3, Stalker 2 don't count any more?

KyRo7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

ARK 3 doesn't exist and it's just a timed exclusive. It's also a game that a majority of the ARK player base doesn't want as it's a massive deviation from what people like about the original game

Abnor_Mal7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

Honestly to me it doesn’t matter what they say, they are just finally getting a chance to say all the things PS fan(boy)s were saying to them for the past few years. Let them get that, they deserve a “win” for a change.

The new narrative is that suddenly first party games matter again when awhile ago they didn’t, but that was because they were struggling with the same three games with the occasional fourth or fifth. That games should be everywhere on all platforms since that’s whats happening to theirs. The consoles don’t matter just the ability to play anywhere. Whatever Xbox is doing Sony will soon follow.

They’re not moving the goalpost anymore, but rather just moving the whole damn stadium.

jwillj2k47d ago

Only a incel would care about who published what and who owns who.

If it’s not on the other consoles it’s an exclusive.

Killing what? Where are the 1st party games??
Stellar Blade and FF7 is what I’m seeing this year.. so shallow!!!!

andy857d ago

Doesn't really matter as long as they're great games. Baffles me why people put an emphasis on 1st party. They're still games you can't play anywhere else this year

Cacabunga6d ago

Andy

PS brand is my favorite because of their stellar first party software.. currently I see absolutely nothing to go crazy for..

CS76d ago

Nonsense.

PS1 and PS2 was built on great third party exclusives like FF, MGS, GTA & Tekken.

RonnySins7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

Killing it my a$$! The 1st party is still MIA and no... Remakes and remasters don't count.

andy857d ago

I mean they literally do count. Imagine saying FF7 Rebirth doesn't count 😂

Tody_ZA7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

@Andy85 Don't forget the remakes for Demon's Souls and Shadow of the Colossus, two of the best PlayStation games around!

And beyond PlayStation, what about Resident Evil 2 and 4? RonnySins wins the award for dumbest opinion!

raWfodog7d ago

Of course I love the games I’ve played from PS but I don’t believe we need to limit it to ‘exclusive’ to acknowledge that Xbox will be releasing some good games this year also. In that same vein, I believe that Xbox diehards shouldn’t limit their acknowledgment of good PS games to 1st party. There are plenty of good games to go around for everybody.

Tacoboto7d ago

This is a Playstation article about Playstation games and your comment is about Xbox. Can't you just celebrate what PS has without dragging this into console war BS?

ChasterMies7d ago

I don’t think Microsoft is releasing games exclusively on Xbox anymore. They have some timed exclusives that release on Xbox first.
